The Moundridge Public Library is one of the winners of the 2016 Kansas Book Festival Grants awarded to just 17 public and school libraries state-wide.
Representatives from the Moundridge Public Library joined Kansas First Lady Mary Brownback for the announcement last Friday in Topeka where they received a check for $844 that will go toward the purchase of new technology.
The Kansas Book Festival began in 2011 under its current leadership. According to Brownback, "The goal of the Kansas Book Festival is to encourage literacy and a life-long love of reading. These grants help libraries across our state purchase new technology and reading material for many reading levels."
The Moundridge Public Lilbary's Technology Grant is one portion of the total $9,262.71 in Technology and Book Grants received this year from corporate and private sponsors.
